Earthquakes are an almost hourly occurrence in the Aleutian Islands. But most are too tiny to feel, and even the bigger ones are usually over in seconds. Just last week, a 4.7M quake went all but unnoticed in Unalaska.
But there’s another type of earthquake that runs deeper than those daily events: a slow earthquake. That's what scientists are now looking for underneath the Aleutians.

The Bering Sea’s largest fishery opened up on Tuesday afternoon. Pollock crews are gearing up for a potential increase in their harvest -- while still keeping an open mind about what the winter has in store.
Within hours of arriving in Unalaska on Tuesday morning, the crew of the Seadawn was back to work.
"We’ll just get everything on the boat and then we can start organizing it," Ron Mitchell yelled as he stacked extra nets on deck using a crane.
The Lady Raiders hit the court this weekend for their first games of the season. Coach Julie Herman sat down with KUCB's Lauren Rosenthal to recap the girls' performance at Bristol Bay High School -- and the challenges they'll face on the road to state championships.
